FROM FR TIM
Bro Michael Taylor CSsR: We warmly congratulate Michael on renewing his vows as a member of our Redemptorist Congregation last Tuesday, the Feast of our founder, St Alphonsus. We thank him for all he has contributed to our two parishes during his four week pastoral placement and wish him every happiness and success as he continues his studies for the priesthood. After a short holiday, he is due to go to Lourdes for three weeks, working in the City of the Poor before returning to London and the new term.
Reminders: Work on the Lady Chapel and adjoining aisle will now commence at the beginning of next week.
Comings and Goings: I will be away for the inside of the coming week and then Fr Andrew will be away for ten days at the European Meeting of Marriage Encounter in Madrid. (By the way he turns 70 next weekend!) I hope you are enjoying the summer in spite of the changeable weather.
Mission Appeal: On Sunday 13 August, Sr Adelina of the Holy Spirit Missionaries will make the statutory annual appeal at all the Masses in both parishes, except the 10.00am at Bishop Eton. Maybe we could still take a collection for her order’s work after the Mass!
SVP monthly collection TODAY after all Masses—including food bank collection, please see the following;
A note of thanks from Bishop Eton SVP: Members of the Parish will be aware that food and goods kindly donated from our Parish are delivered alternately to the South Liverpool Food Bank and to the Sisters of Divine Mercy in Seel Street, for their work with the homeless. To support their work the SVP will offer a further opportunity to make donations of tinned and other storable foods. A box will be available in the Church entrance, before each Mass when the usual monthly collection is made, beginning today.
Please pray for the repose of the soul of John Magill. John, brother of Danny, may be known to some parishioners as he attended SFX College and spent his early professional years teaching at St Edward's and SFX. He died in Canterbury last week and his funeral will be in Faversham on 23rd August.
